Welcome to Mrs Eaton's Class 6E

Welcome back to your last term at

Much Wenlock Primary School! 

We are off to Arthog the first week back, so let's hope the sun will be shining!  When we return, we have three weeks to go until SATs, so it'll be straight back to boot camp I'm afraid! 

On the 27th April, we will be attending the Book Award ceremony at Theatre Severn, where the winning book of Book Award and the winners of the three competitions will be announced.  We will also get to meet some or all of the authors who wrote the short listed books. 

After that, we have lots of other exciting things to look forward to. For example, in maths we will be working on a maths challenge to raise money for the end of year trip, we will also be working towards the year 6 play. 

This term, our theme is 'Passport to the World' - The World cup.  Our class will be focusing on Russia. 

In Science this first half term we are going to be continuing with Habitats/Evolution.  In the second half term, we will be combining the topic of 'Ourselves and other animals' with the Respect Yourself Sex Education programme of study. 

In Art and Design we will be looking at art from the Russian artist Kandinsky.  

SMSC

Tolerance and Resilience are our themes for SMSC this term.  

PE

As the weather improves and the constraints of SATs preparation are removed, we will be taking advantage of the better weather and enjoying more frequent PE sessions consisting of Rounders and Cricket. Please ensure your PE kit remains in school from Monday to Friday every week and you have the correct school PE kit of white T shirt, dark bottoms and a pair of trainers.

 

A note for Parents/Carers...

Please support your child in encouraging your child to read as often as possible.  Children will receive homework for SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and Maths every Wednesday, which is due in on Monday mornings.  Please encourage your child to complete their homework on a Wednesday or a Thursday night so that if they have any problems completing it, they can ask myself or Mrs Hawthorn for help before it is due in on a Monday morning.

Spellings

We are continuing with our spelling scheme: ‘Read Write Inc.’

To support their learning of spellings, the children will be given two spelling books to practise their spellings for the week: one to be kept in school for morning spelling practice each day, the other to be brought to school each Monday to stick in the new weekly spelling grid, then returned home to practise spellings at home each night.  Each book will have a grid where children can practise their spellings using a 'look, cover, write, check' method.  On Friday they will receive a test on a random selection of these words.  Please encourage your child to bring their 'home spelling book' home every Monday and to practise their spellings each evening using the 'look, cover, write, check method.'

 

Many thanks for all your support.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
